Interior and Exterior Paint Colors

Colors are more than what meets the eye. They can either make or mar your wardrobe or even worse, your home. Each with its own distinct allure, colors have a psychological effect on the human mind and can influence our emotions and perceptions in a variety of ways.

Colors such as red, yellow and orange are often regarded as warm colors, igniting a variety of emotions ranging from comfort and warmth to hostility and anger. Whereas cool colors – such as green, blue and purple – often trigger feelings of calmness as well as sadness.

So, while planning on re-painting your walls or refurbishing a house or room with a new color pattern. Why not take advantage of an amazing color combination that, not only reflects your preferences and personality? It can also alter the shape and size of the room to best suit your unique tastes.

Whether Interior or exterior, to get the best out of your color(s) of choice, there are a few factors to consider. One of which is the purpose of the room, who uses it, your choice of furniture, and amount of lighting in the room.

Exterior painting, on the other hand, is determined by a list of other factors. In regards to painting the exterior, consider the roofing, the landscaping, the neighborhood and regional factors, like climate, as these elements will play an important part in your final decision. The right paint and color will not only protect the exterior of your home, it is also a great way to express your personal style to the public; a way to say, “this is who I am”.

Painting is more than just choosing the right color combination; it is imperative that you also choose a good quality brand. High-quality paints are usually durable, resistant to mould, mildew and ultraviolet rays and most importantly eco-friendly.

Consider some of these colors for your home, depending on your individual preferences and personality.

Red – Red has been shown to not only, stimulate appetite, but also bring people together and encourage conversation.

Bright Colours – Bright colors like, white or yellow can be used to create the illusion of space. Colours of this nature can help make a room look larger than it actually is. This trick is not limited to the interior; give your exterior a look of depth with bright colors.

Cool Colours – Give blue a try for your bedroom. Blue is often linked to calmness and tranquillity, which helps us to chill out before we fall asleep. It is also said that blue aids in reducing blood and heart rate, ensuring we get a good night rest.

Warm Colours – Yellow, orange or red can help give your home a welcoming feeling and an attitude of warmth, especially during the cold periods of the year.

Exterior – With regards to your exterior, you want a look that is warm and inviting while also revealing your personal style. Why not try white, blue, green or even red depending on what you want. Ensure your paint color is unique, so that your home stands out, but not in an obtrusive manner.
